Christianization and the rise of Christian monarchy : Scandinavia, Central Europe and Rus' c. 900-1200 by Nora Berend( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comparative, interdisciplinary analysis of one of the most fundamental stages in the formation of Europe. Leading scholars explore the role of the spread of Christianity and the formation of new principalities in the birth of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Bohemia, Hungary, Poland and Rus' around the year 1000. Drawing on history, archaeology and art history, and emphasizing problems related to the sources and historiographical debates, they demonstrate the complex interdependence between the processes of religious and political change, covering conditions prior to the introduction of Christianity, the adoption of Christianity, and the development of the rulers' power. Regional patterns emerge, highlighting both the similarities in ruler-sponsored cases of Christianization, and differences in the consolidation of power and in the use made of institutions introduced by Christianity. The essays reveal how local societies adopted Christianity; medieval ideas of what constituted the dividing line between Christians and non-Christians; and the connections between Christianity and power
Central Europe in the high Middle Ages : Bohemia, Hungary and Poland c.900- c.1300 by Nora Berend( Book )

19 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This groundbreaking comparative history of the early centuries of Bohemia, Hungary and Poland sets the development of each polity in the context of the central European region as a whole. Focusing on the origins of the realms and their development in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, the book concludes with the thirteenth century when significant changes in social and economic structures occurred. The book presents a series of thematic chapters on every aspect of the early history of the region covering political, religious, economic, social and cultural developments, including an investigation of origin myths that questions traditional national narratives. It also explores the ways in which west European patterns were appropriated and adapted through the local initiatives of rulers, nobles and ecclesiastics in central Europe. An ideal introduction to the essential themes in medieval central European history, the book sheds important new light on regional similarities and differences."--Publisher's description
At the gate of Christendom : Jews, Muslims, and "pagans" in medieval Hungary, c. 1000-c. 1300 by Nora Berend( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern life in increasingly heterogeneous societies has directed attention to patterns of cultural interactions. While scholars have often used the binary framework of persecution and tolerance to understand such interaction, this book argues that both exclusion and integration simultaneously characterised medieval non-Christian status. It compares the place of Jews, Muslims and nomad Cumans between 1000 and 1300 in Hungary, a kingdom on the frontier of Christendom." "A complex picture of non-Christian status emerges from the analysis of economic, social, legal, and religious positions and roles. Existence on the frontier with the nomadic world led to the formulation of a frontier ideology, and to anxiety about Hungary's detachment from Christendom. The author uses a variety of written and material evidence, including Latin charters and laws, rabbinical responses, accounts by Muslim travellers, and archaeological finds, and draws upon analogies with other areas of medieval Christendom. The study also succeeds in integrating central European history into the study of the medieval world, while challenging how the concepts of frontier societies, persecution and tolerance, ethnicity, and 'the other' are currently used in medieval studies."--Jacket
Religious minorities in Christian, Jewish and Muslim law (5th-15th centuries) by RELMIN: The legal status of religious minorities in the Euro-Mediterranean world (5th -15th centuries) (Conference)( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fruit of a sustained and close collaboration between historians, linguists and jurists working on the Christian, Muslim and Jewish societies of the Middle Ages, this book explores the theme of religious coexistence (and the problems it poses) from a resolutely comparative perspective. The authors concentrate on a key aspect of this coexistence: the legal status attributed to Jews and Muslims in Christendom and to dhimmis in Islamic lands. To what extent are the rights of the minorities to reside in their communities distinct from, or similar, to those of the majority community? What role did the law play in the segregation of religious groups? In limiting, combating, or on the contrary justifying violence against them? What specific treatments and procedures in the courtroom were reserved for plaintiffs, defendants or witnesses belonging to religious minorities? Through these questions, and through the innovative comparative method applied to them, this book offers a fresh new synthesis to these questions and a spur to new research.", résumé éditeur

Migrations et diasporas méditerranéennes (Xe-XVIe siècles) \ by Pedro Bádenas de la Peña( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Méditerranée a été de tout temps zone de brassage. La période médiévale a vu s'y déployer bien des migrations, proches par leurs caractères des grands déplacements humains de l'époque contemporaine : flux et reflux des marchands italiens allant s'installer dans les comptoirs d'outre-mer, migrations forcées des Arméniens créant un nouveau foyer en Cilicie, ou des juifs espagnols cherchant refuge dans l'empire ottoman après le décret d'expulsion de 1492, migrations économiques d'Albanais, de Coumans, de Syriens, de Bulgares, ou de gens de guerre pour qui ne comptent que l'aventure et l'appât du gain. Les motivations sont multiples, de même que les itinéraires empruntés. Migrations et diasporas, à l'origine de la création de colonies et de comptoirs, révèlent un système de valeurs et montrent comment les groupements humains assurent la continuité et le renouvellement de leurs propres structures, tout en s'adaptant aux changements imposés par la conjoncture. Le monde méditerranéen fut et demeure le lieu de profonds bouleversements humains que seule une différence d'échelle sépare aujourd'hui de ceux d'hier. Saisir ceux-ci dans leur complexité aide à mieux comprendre le monde contemporain
